MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - A Mt. Pleasant dentistry helped restore smiles as it offered free services to dozens of lowcountry adults.
Pleasant Family Dentistry participated in the national "Dentistry from the Heart" event Saturday morning. The office gave a free service, including extractions, fillings, and cleanings, to 100 adults.
"We're really trying to get most people out of pain - anything that's bothering them," Owner Greg Johnson said, adding that a crowd of people were waiting before the office even opened. "But some people just like to come in and get a regular cleaning because they can't afford to do that during the year."
Johnson said dentists, hygienists and an oral surgeon from other area practices volunteered their services, too.
"Everyone is so appreciative that gets seen and there is a lot of need out there," Johnson said. "We're not doing a whole lot, but it feels good to do what we can do."
This is the fourth year Pleasant Family Dentistry participated in the event.
